Former President John Mahama has said the 2020 manifesto of his party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), holds all the answers to the problems Ghana is going through under President Nana Akufo-Addo.
Speaking to NDC leaders and supporters in the Eastern Region on the first day of his Thank You tour in the Eastern Region, the 2020 flag bearer of the main opposition party, said: “If you look at the things happening in Ghana today – the high unemployment rate, businesses are suffering, the economy is collapsing – all the answers to what Ghana is going through today are in NDC’s 2020 manifesto”.
“The Big Push for infrastructure; GHS10 billion into infrastructure to construct our roads, hospitals, schools and all those things, are in the NDC’s 2020 manifesto”, he stressed.
According to him, there were no more discussions of the NPP’s 2020 manifesto in the lead-up to the last general elections “the moment we published the NDC’s manifesto”.
“We had a one-million jobs plan. Solving the galamsey menace was also in the manifesto”, he said.
Mr Mahama said the Akufo-Addo government is taking Ghanaians in the wrong direction, explaining that there is so much nepotism, corruption and insecurity in the country.
He noted that a dollar is now trading at GHS6.1 while every Ghanaian owes more than GHS11,000 IF the country’s total debt were share among the entire population.
